For the London Olympics weightlifters will be divided into 15 different categories -- eight weights for men and seven for the women. The strongest competitors can lift as much as three-times their body weight.

There are two types of lift. If the weightlifter attemps a "snatch", then the bar is lifted from the floor to above their head in one go, whilst in a "clean and jerk" the bar is first brought up to shoulder-level before being lifted over the head.
